When the Democratic Party nominates for President a believer in a religious sect,

which the Democratic Party has done for most of its history, will that person be respected for his/her beliefs, or will she/he be mocked in this group?

What has occurred in the past in this group re religious and nonreligious Democratic candidates, knowing that most political candidates in the United States profess to be members of religion?

Sorry to know that. Could it be that possibly your movements in bed

were fewer, and movement is good for someone with arthritis?

(I had osteoarthritis in knees, but both were replaced over 15 yrs ago.)

Good input. I'm wondering if some name brands produce them as well as

the expected generic types.

What was the weight of yours, if you don't mind?
Are you still using it - sounds as though you've given it up.

Weighted blankets - a newer concept to me. Experiences with, please.

I'm good with the idea of enabling better sleep.

Apparently weighted blankets are supposed to be good for this - calming, easing anxiety, etc.
They come in various weights, which may have to do with one's own weight and size.
What is the base fabric, and does it make a difference, other than the obvious - cleaning/washing the blanket?

I am old, with middle-aged adult children.
Am thinking of gifting them, or some of them, with such for Christmas, if they seem worthwhile.

Did I detect some form of perhaps foreign accent from the gentleman?

Is this perhaps an ethnic or racial matter?
Is that what triggered her?
Not enough info given....

45 must have thought he was speaking above the roar of a helicopter engine...

I'm so sick of this casual offhand way of conducting state business and news conferences...

Down-to-earth style; hopefully, Midwestern swing states would follow.

She says she has never lost an election.
I don't know her age, but younger than Biden & Warren.

Amy Klobuchar is closer to Biden's temperament and style.

Amy K. has the amiable Midwest style that Biden may need.

She would not overwhelm the Biden style in the way Warren might.
